HyTrEc2 partner Aberdeen stipulates training requirement in hydrogen procurement

18 August 2020 - Published by Rachael Goodfellow

HyTrEc2 Work Package 5, training objectives are guiding our partners in all aspects of thei hydrogen work. 

HyTrEc2 partner, Aberdeen stipulated that a training component was included in a recent Invitation to Quote (ITQ). Recently, Aberdeen City Council put out an ITQ out to the market seeking a company to decommission a dual-fuel van and produce incorporated training content. 



The winning company, ULEMCo has promised to work alongside the local college, NESCol to create training materials visually depicting the process of decommissioning a hydrogen vehicle at the end of its life. 

Decommissioning is an oft forgotten aspect of Hydrogen Transport, with the majority of individuals solely focused on getting more and more hydrogen-fueled-vehicles up and running, but it is a vital component of the cycle. The skills garnered from the ULEMCo-NESCol decommissioning training materials will help develop a vital resource for the hydrogen economy & ensure that the hydrogen transport sector promotes safety and sustainability through-out the life-cycle of vehicles. 


Further details of the training materials will come soon!
